Tocchet at the World Series of Poker
We're not sure who is giving career advice to Rick Tocchet and Janet Jones, but they might want to look for second opinions in the future.The timing of the whole thing is what gets me. Tocchet is scheduled to be sentenced in just more than a month, and you really wonder how the optics of the whole thing will look given gambling has ruined his reputation and career aspirations.
With nothing to do while on indefinite suspension from his job as associate coach of the Coyotes and while awaiting sentencing on third-degree conspiracy and promoting gambling convictions, Tocchet decided it would be a terrific idea to enter the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
Of course, there's a big difference between competing in a poker tournament and what Tocchet pleaded guilty to, but there's certainly a connection there.
